We all know and love Paddy Power, but what’s it actually like to work for the UK’s fastest growing bookmaker?Here’s quick run-down of all the fun you’d be getting up to as part of the Better Team.

Working for Paddy Power

The Paddy Power Football Competition

It’s not just about handling sports bets – as an employee you can get in on fun too! Paddy Power’s own staff football competition is a great event to bring the team together that even the Distict Managers get involved in.

Pop Up Shops

Working in Paddy Power retail, you’ll have the chance to work at one of their many pop up shops, meaning you’ll get involved in some of the greatest sporting events around. 

And if that doesn’t interest you, there’s always the free food…

Covid Protection Measures

Even during the bad times, Paddy Power has proven it’s still a great company to work for. Their response to COVID meant shops and offices had to shut, but they adapted quickly:

  • Weekly updates from HR
  • No Furlough here – full pay for staff
  • A gift of shares 
  • Gifted 1000’s of Tesco vouchers to all staff

With staff wellbeing being an important factor of Paddy Power, they also considered others who needed a helping hand during this time, hosting many charity events and joining the Sun’s Jabs Army campaign for vaccine volunteers.

With this year’s re-opening, Paddy Power keeps a promise to ensure customer and staff safety as a main priority.

A Summary of Working at Paddy Power Last Year:

Still Unsure? Here’s what Paddy Power staff have to say:

“Joined the business in 2014 and within three years I progressed from Cashier to Shop Manager. As Shop Manager I regularly promote new offers in a competitive market, which means analysing the competition. I handle difficult situations daily and I love the challenge, what I find even more rewarding is the training and development of my team. You always have the help and necessary support from your Senior Managers at Paddy Power.”

“I started my Paddy Power journey in 2017 and I still love it as much as my first day. I have obtained many valuable skills in leadership, commerciality and adaptability.

The culture and values at Paddy Power encourage me to try new things, seeking out new and exciting opportunities within the retail environment.”

Catalina Stroe, Shop Manager, Edgware Road

“I started my Paddy Power Journey back in 2013. During my time here I have progressed to Shop Manager, developing both my customer relations and people management along the way.

What really stands out is how Paddy Power cares about its staff. I fully enjoy my role and the ownership and responsibilities that go along with it, from dealing with a bet related query and keeping on top of the ever-changing industry trends to planning Shop operations.”
